ARE GUN-FREE ZONES THE ANSWER?
Discussed by Michael Hammond
with Gun Owners of America (www.GunOwners.org)
The Ohio State attacker had free reign to attack anyone he wanted at Ohio State since that university is a gun-free zone.
The Somali-born student injured 11 people, one of them critically, when he attacked a crowd of pedestrians on campus in an incident one lawmaker said "bears all the hallmarks of a terror attack." What was his weapon of choice? A knife.
Michael Hammond is Legislative Council for Gun Owners of America. He is here today to discuss this incident and offers helpful information.
Why are officials (through the MSM) refusing to admit this specific attack was terrorist-related?
Thank goodness an alarm went off for an un-related incident in the “gun-free zone”, because a campus police officer was on scene and stopped the attacker within one minute. Michael Hammond elaborates on the MSM original story and what really happened.
Did you hear the story of the young woman who reported that three military-trained students barricaded themselves in front of their classroom door – it is amazing!
If companies like McDonalds and Nike can use social media to determine where I shop, eat, and travel, why can’t the FBI use the same information to target terrorists?

IS A PROPERTY TAX OVERHAUL IN THE FUTURE?
Discussed by James Quintero
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

important that the men and women we elected to represent us know how we really
feel about this issue. But, how can average citizens make a
James Quintero is the Director at the Center for Local Governance at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Listen in as he gives more details everyone should be aware of.

What is already being done to overhaul the current property tax system?

WHY I AM NOT A MUSLIM - PART 3
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)
This is the final week for Mark’s presentation on “Why I Am Not a Muslim”. He makes a point to mention that he could teach on this particular religion for weeks and weeks, but he must condense it down. Therefore, he has chosen to elaborate on one final reason for his own personal belief that Islam is not the correct faith to follow: Historical Accuracy.
“Before you decide to believe something, put it to the common-sense test,” Mark states.
Do you have confidence in the Bible? Do you believe that the Bible is historically accurate? Is the Quran historically accurate?
Mark has some common-sense facts for you, using an example from a court case, of course!
“Jesus did not come and challenge us to believe in the face of common-sense,” Mark goes on to say. “Jesus came and said: ‘I am the Way. I am the Truth’. We are to seek truth.”
Mark is leading his 800+ member class into a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Join him next Sunday at Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston.
